###################################

Version 5.0.0 released on 2-14-2020

   * Licensing: Updated licensing of Wall Worm Pro and merged Wall Worm Pro, Wall Worm Pro Pack into the free license of Wall Worm. All versions of Wall Worm are now packaged as Wall Worm Pro Pack.

   * PropLine: Updated the Create from Selection macro to only add an edit normals modifier onto the PropLine node if one of the selected geometry nodes is a WallWormMDL node that has a defined MDL name.
   
   * Displacements: Updated the Create Displacements function to not create a displacement when the selected geometry is a Brush Entity.
   
   * Displacements: Fixed bad orientations that sometimes happened with the displacement function to revert from source geometry.
   
   * Displacements: Fixed function for resetting displacement UVs from Brush.
   
   * Displacements: Fixed bad orientation of some displacements after using functions to reset from underlying brush.
   
   * Displacements: Added new button in the Displacement floater to delete selected displacements. Works faster than standard Delete function.
   
   * Worm Face: Updated Worm Face to not require collapsed objects in most cases. Now applies an Edit Poly modifier in cases of objects it doesn't natively know how to set IDs to.
   
###################################

Version 4.3.31 released on 2-3-2020

   * CorVex: Updated CorVex snap functions to work a little faster. Biggest gains in Max 2018.2+ (Wall Worm Pro Pack).

###################################

Version 4.3.30 released on 2-2-2020

   * Displacements: Fixed bug creating a displacement from an object with a material that had a texture in the diffusemap that doesn't have a "coords" property.
   
   * CorVex: Updated CorVex to preserve proper sub-object selection when using the Multi Floor settings (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
   * CorVex: Added new Face Selection options to select only the very top or very bottom faces when using a Multi-Floor CorVex (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
###################################

Version 4.3.29 released on 2-2-2020

   * Get Brush By ID: Updated the Get Brush By ID function to also include entity IDs.
   
   * VMF Exporter: Updated the VMF Exporter to store the ID of entities when exporting so they can also be fetched via the Get Brush By ID. Used on both brush and point entities.
   
   * CorVex: Added new Snap Method Option to choose between new snap method and older snap method (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
   * PropLine: Fixed when using some kinds of splines.
   
###################################

Version 4.3.28 released on 2-2-2020

   * Problem Checker: Added checks for displacements on brushes that are tied to entities.
   
   * Material Utilities: Fixed the rename function causing a MAXScript error.
   
   * Entities: Updated the Brush Entity function to tie to entity to check whether displacements are tied to the geometry. If so, will not tie the entity to the brush.
   
   * Entities: Updated the Brush Entity function to tie to entity to check whether the geometry objects are valid for brush geometry. If not, will not tie the entity to the brush. This means you can no longer accidentally tie a MDL node to a brush entity or use most known invalid geometry classes (like Torus, for example).
   
   * CorVex: Updated the Material ID labels and tooltips for some properties to reflect the appropriate section of the CorVex node depending on whether it is in Wall Mode or not. In Wall Mode, the Side 1 label is now "Hidden" to represent the faces hidden between block segements (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
###################################

Version 4.3.27 released on 2-2-2020

   * Problem Checker: Added checks for brushes with many sides.
   
   * Problem Checker: Updated Problem Checker to exclude concave-tagged brushes from the Convex brush check. Explicitly tagged concave brushes export as one brush-per-element and more often than not give false positives for the Convexity check.

   * Updated CorVex to use an Interpolation of 0 for any Rectangle or Ngon used in a CorVex that isn't set to Wall Mode.

###################################

Version 4.3.26 released on 2-1-2020

   * PropLine: Fixed Spacing and Divide settings having incorrect results when using a Line or CorVex Spline (Wall Worm Pro Pack).

###################################

Version 4.3.24 released on 1-30-2020

   * CorVex: Fixed bug in CorVex in Block Mode using a CorVex Spline where an extra set of vertices were being added with a zero-area polygon (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
   * CorVex: Fixed bad snap results when the corvex node isn't aligned to the world grid (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
###################################

Version 4.3.23 released on 1-25-2020

   * Settings: Cleaned up some items in the Miscellaneous tab of the global settings.
   
   * CorVex Spline: Fixed bug with Multi-Floor settings in CorVex Spline (Wall Worm Pro Pack).
   
###################################

   * Menus: Added two new Material menus to assign texture paths (names) to match selected materials (either in selected objects in scene or in current Slate selection).
